International Talk Like a Pirate Day

In case none of your geeky co-workers have informed you by going ‘AARRRRR’ in your voice mail, today is indeed ‘International Talk Like a Pirate Day’.  International – but somehow I just can’t see people in say . . . . Zimbabwe, celebrating.  Perhaps it’s just me.  They do celebrate in Somalia however. . . just ask the French cruise lines.  But I digress.

As a real-life descendant of Highland pirates, I’ve always had a special fondness for anything dealing with the roguish lifestyle. Even so, I wouldn’t be able to talk that way for more than 5 minutes -  less time would elapse if I had to listen to someone else doing it.

Which is why I’m taking the opportunity to start my own holiday to coincide with this one, Reverend Mortis’ “Bitchslap Ignorant Bastards Day” (or B.I.B. Day for short).  I feel it’s fairly self-explanatory.

Feel free to celebrate either Day as you see fit, but don’t blame me if you should happen to get slapped.  You’ve been warned. . .
